o beat Brdly 5-3

Special to the Daily
ENDINBURGH, Texas - Freshman
Mike Betz delivered a bases-loaded
tw-run double in his first collegiate at-
bat to give the Michigan baseball team
5-3 victory over Bradley yesterday.
Betz's eighth-inning blow followed
back-to-back singles by Rich Bair and
Casey Close and a walk to Matt Siuda.
It provided pitcher Scott Kamieniecki
with the support he would need to pick
uphis first win of the season.
KAMIENIECKI (1-0) struck out nine
and allowed only four hits in out-dueling
fellow U.S. Olympic baseball team
member Michael Dunne (1-1). The
Wolverine righthander had a two-hit
shutout going into the sixth inning when
he surrendered three walks and two
hits which accounted for all three of
Bradley's runs. The Detroit native then
settled down and retired the last eight
hitters in a row.
Michigan's other runs came during a

seventh inning rally which began with a
walk to Kurt Zimmerman. After an out,
pinch hitter Jeff Minich doubled to right
sending Zimmerman to third. Dunne
struck out Chuck Froning but con-
secutive walks to Barry Larkin and
Mike Watters loaded the bases and
produced the first run.
Ken Hayward followed with a two-run
single which tied the game and set the
stage for Betz's heroics.'
The victory evened the Wolverines'
record in the Jody Ramsey Tour-
nament at 1-1. Their next game is
tonight against tournament host Pan-
American University with left-hander
Gary Wayne scheduled to start.
Michigan's overall record now stands
at 2-2 with both victories coming over
Bradley. Hayward leads the squad with
a .538 batting average and nine RBI.
Close (.467, five RBI) and Larkin (.353)
are also off to good starts at the plate.

Looking at the Michigan women's
tennis team's schedule, it is easy to see
that the squad's match against Calvin
College today at the indoor tennis
building will indeed'be the calm before
the storm.
After the match against the Divison
III school, the Wolverines (3-6) will
prepare for a six-match road string that
features four Big Ten teams, Notre
Dame, rand Mid-AmericanConference
power Miami. The trip begins Friday at
Western Michigan.
MICHIGAN coach Ollie Owens will
play a juggled lineup in today's contest.
"I'll be playing some people I haven't
had a chance to see," Owens said. "It'll
give some people a chance to play."
The Wolverines will stick the with its
top three players, Mary Mactaggart,
Paula Reichert, and Karen Milczarski.
Monica Borcherts, usually a No. 6
singles player, will move up to No. 4
singles. Ann Mazure at No. 5 and Trisha
Horn at No. 6 will play in their first
matches of the season.
Calvin College, coached by Nancy
Van Noord, will make their season
debut. They are led by senior Jan
Boerema, who won the Division III
state doubles title last season. Of the
eight players on the roster, five are

McCormick wakes up...- -
... too bad he overslept
A T 8:00 p.m. last Monday, the Crisler Arena alarm clock went off. Tim
McCormick woke up and became a basketball player again.
It's not that the Michigan senior ever stopped playing the game. He just
stopped playing the way he is capable of playing - until Monday night.
McCormick banged his way to 21 points and eight rebounds in Michigan's
83-70 NIT victory over Marquette. More significantly, the Wolverine center
(he still plays the post, no matter what position he fills during the pre-game
introductions) grabbed a few loose balls on defense, kept muscular Warrior
center Tom Copa away from the basket and finished the game without a tur-
nover. He even hit seven of 10 free throws and a 15-foot jump shot.
It was quite a change from the McCormick who manned the Wolverine
middle down the stretch of the Big Ten season. That McCormick dropped
passes, got stripped of the ball by opposing guards and badly missed both
free throws and jumpers.
The old Tim
Monday night's McCormick was the
McCormick that Michigan missed so
sorely when the games counted. He and
Eric Turner were supposed to form the
heart of the Wolverine attack. Instead,
Roy Tarpley pumped life into the team
while Turner and Dan Pelekoudas became
the veins and arteries. McCormick
seemed more like a kidney.
The 6-11, 240-pounder played an integral
role in the Wolverines' success, but you got
the feeling that he was an interchangeable
part. The skills which made the former
high school All-American unique, his
rough inside game and soft. outside shot, Mc(ormick
disappeared.McCormick contributed his size, intelligence and ball-handling
skills but little else.
Monday night's outburst could have been more timely - against North-
western, for instance - but the Michigan co-captain and his coach will take
it just the same.
"I played better than I have been," McCormick said after the game.
"Things haven't worked out the way I've wanted them to lately."
Frieder said: "It was good to see McCormick play the way he did. He was
aggressive, he scored and did a good job on the boards."
In other words, he did the things that Frieder and everyone else in Crisler
Arena expected him to do all year long.
Towering over five Musketeers
McCormick might enjoy similar success tomorrow night against Xavier.
The Cincinnati school boasts no players taller than 6-8.
If he flops, though, it really should not matter. The Wolverines' talent
should overwhelm the visiting Musketeers and anyone else left in the NIT.
Even Frieder can't deny that his team features talent superior to that of the
other seven quarterfinalists. Two weeks ago, Frieder probably could not
name a single player on Xavier, Southwest Louisiana, Virginia Tech or San-
ta Clara.
Three big games by McCormick, however, would make Michigan's chores
a bit easier to perform. Tarpley no longer surprises opponents. Expect
teams to sag on the smooth, scoring whiz. If defenses collapse around Tar-
pley, McCormick should be able to work his way' free, He might even ac-
cumulate a couple more 20-point games.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines, it would be a classic case of too little, too

W ITH EIGHT teams remaining in the NIT and 16 in the
NCAAs, this seems like a good time to ask an expert
how things are developing:
Q - How are Michigan's chances in the NIT?
A - Pretty good. Xavier, its next opponent, struggled to
win two home games with Ohio State an Nebraska. The
Wolverines will be favorites at Crisler Thrusday and once
they get to New York, it's anybody's tournament.
Q - Do the two big wins over Wichita State and Marquet-
te prove that Michigan belonged in the NCAAs?
A - You can't go by the results of those games. Who's to
say that the results would have been the same on a neutral
court? But regardless of the NIT results, the Wolverines
did deserve an NCAA bid.
Q - Then why didn't they get one? Michigan's record
was as good as some of the teams that got at-large bids.
A - Despite the ,fact that Michigan is ranked higher on
the computers than Virginia, Alabama, Villanova and St.
John's, those schools are perennial tournament favorites.
The committee probably decided to go with a safe bet
rather than a team that hasn't been there since 1977.
Q - If Frieder's crew doesn't win the NIT, who will?
A - Virginia Tech. The Hokies (how can they win with
that name?) should beat Tennessee Friday and make it to
Madison Square Garden. This is a team that annihilated
Memphis State during the season and upset Louisville in the
Metro tourney.
Q - OK, moving on to the real tournament, who do you
like in the round of 16?
A - Out East, go with Syracuse over Virginia by five and
North Carolina over Indiana by 20.
Q - Aren't you being a little rough on the Hoosiers?
A - No, Illinois beat them by 17 a couple of weeks ago.
The Tar Heels will make the Hoosiers look like an IM team.
Q - What about the Mideast?
A - I see Kentucky destroying Louisville. Take
Maryland over Illinois by nine.
Q - There goes the last Big Ten team. Why do ?you
predict an early exit for the conference representatives?
A - The style of play in the Big Ten kills the teams that
can't adapt to the pace of the NCAAs.' Look at Purdue.
Gene Keady's team went 15-3 in the league by keeping the
games close and then hitting all of its free throws down the
stretch. You can do that in a conservative, defense-orien-

Illinois, Indiana to fall..
.. .Wolverines move right along
But when the Boilermakers had to play Memphis State,
they were thoroughly overmatched. The Tigers didn't sit
around and wait for things to develop, they gave the ball to
Keith Lee and made them happen. Before Purdue could get
the number of the truck that hit it, Memphis State was a 66-48
winner. Jim Rowinski and friends took their half-share of
the Big Ten title home to West Lafayette.
Q - Fine, so Purdue's style wasn't suited for Memphis State.
Does that mean that Indiana and Illinois also have to lose?
A - They don't have to, but they will. Indiana's a year
away from being a legitimate national title contender. The
Illini are more talented than Purdue but Maryland is better
than Memphis State. Lou Henson's squad will have trouble
with the Terrapins' front line of Ben Coleman, Len Bias and
Herman Veal.
,Q - You mean none of the schools in the Big Ten this year
have the ability to adapt to a faster-paced game?
A - Michigan does. Unlike Purdue which has no speed,
Illinois which has no depth and Indiana whose center is a
stiff, the Wolverines have all the dimensions of a team that
can play Big Ten ball during the regular season and turn to
a running game in the tournament.
Q - That has to be encouraging for next season.
A - Yeah, but the key will be winning on the road in the
Big Ten. I have no doubt that, barring injury, Roy Tarpley
and Rich Rellford will be.great next year. But the team has
got to play disciplined ball to get to the NCAAs.
Tremendous players don't always combine to form
a conference champ. Just ask Jud Heathcote.
Q - Getting back to the regionals, who's going to take the
Midwest and West?
A - DePaul will beat Wake Forest, Houston will edge
Memphis State (I have my doubts about this one), look for
UNLV to upset Georgetown and Washington to end
Dayton's Cinderella Express.
Q - Dayton? Isn't that the crummy team that came into
Crisler in December and got wasted?
A - The very same. You can never tell who's going to get
hot in March.
Q - We're just about out of space. Any last comment?
A - Yes, I'd like to suggest that the basketball band learn
to play New York, New York between now and tomorrow
night. It'll come in handy.
